While there is much in common about preparing health professionals for their careers, each discipline has its own unique requirements, competencies, and challenges that educators face. We understand this and seek to learn and provide individualized solutions for your discipline. Read more about what we are doing in all of the areas we support.
Colleges and Schools of Pharmacy
From pressures with filling entrance slots to the now mandatory PCOA to the updated NAPLEX exam, we understand the challenges pharmacy schools face. That is why we work closely with our pharmacy clients to support readiness, provide remediation resources for PCOA, and help schools better prepare students for the more demanding NAPLEX.
Dental schools are adjusting to the significant change from the use of two exams for licensure to a single examination (INBDE) scheduled for its first administration in 2020. From the 10 Foundational Knowledge areas to the 65 Clinical Content areas, dental schools are taking a close look at how their curriculum fits with this new paradigm. Dental schools also have as a mission to better assess student competency and to use all available assessment and instructional tools including OSCEs. We are working hard to support both of the mandates.

Physician Assistant Programs
Physician Assistant programs have counted on Exam Master for many years to support the education and training in one of the fastest growing health professions. Busy PA educators, often dividing their time between teaching and practice, rely on Exam Master to help with assessments, remediation, and board preparation. We have resources for the PANCE as well as for the didactic portion of the curriculum.

The one constant we see in medicine is change. Whether that change is in the form of continual reworking of all or parts of the curriculum, the adoption of new educational methods, or simply the never-ending change in medical content, it presents tremendous challenges for allopathic and osteopathic medical schools. From helping schools better assess incoming students for readiness to helping them more easily gather data for the medical student performance evaluation, we can help at all phases of the curriculum.

We understand that the one size fits all approach definitely does not fit solving the challenges of preparing tomorrow’s nurses. We support the nursing profession at all levels from ADN programs to DNP programs and everything in between. We help programs better assess incoming student readiness, we provide special assessment for many nursing courses, and we have resources to help with RN and Advance Practice licensure and certification.

Post-graduate medical education is where our physicians strengthen their competence and build confidence to be independent practitioners. The challenges for educators are varied, including ensuring that all residents get an equivalent educational experience, and ensuring that clinical competence is adequately and objectively measured. We can help.

Exam Master owes a debt of gratitude to all of the medical libraries we have been privileged to serve. From small hospital-based libraries to VA health center libraries to Academic Health Center libraries, we have learned much and appreciate all the good friendships and working relationships we’ve built over the years. Our specialty is to provide medical libraries with high-quality resources under flexible licensing arrangements to help them better serve their constituents.

Teaching hospitals serve a complex mission of providing a supportive and collaborative environment for the training of the clinical professionals of tomorrow while ensuring the provision of safe and effective patient care. We have worked with teaching hospitals for years, directly with residency programs, and also with hospital-based medical libraries. We also serve the VA healthcare system supporting active and in-training physician assistants.
